If Roses Grow in Heaven

By Dolores M. Garcia

 

If roses grow in heaven

Lord Please pick a bunch for me

Place them in my Mother’s arms

And tell her they’re from me.

 

Tell her I love her and miss her

And when she turns to smile

Place a kiss upon her cheek

And hold her for awhile.

 

Because remembering her is easy

I do it every day

But there’s an ache within my heart

That will never go away…

Due to inclement weather and the current COVID-19 situation, a celebration of life or a graveside service will be announced at a later date.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Knox Funeral Home.
